Hell is White – Reetu Sattar

Reetu Sattar spent this July in Burnley exploring the cotton industry and the Bangladeshi community’s relationship to it.

Hell is White* is a film, made in Dhaka, which captures the process of cotton shredding by hand, a dying art in the face of vast mechanisation shown here against the backdrop of the now redundant Lancashire looms.

* from Elizabeth Gaskell’s novel, North South, which was dramatised by the BBC and filmed at Queen Street Mill.
